Why has the Watchtower missed the date of Armageddon every time it predicted it?

Why did Armageddon fail to come in 1975 as the Watchtower predicted?

In Kingdom Ministry, May 1974, the world’s end was said to be ‘so very near’ that JWs were commended who sold ‘their homes and property’ to devote themselves to full-time service in ‘the short time remaining before the wicked world’s end’. (p 3)

In 1975 they said, ‘The fulfillment . . . is immediately ahead of us.’ (Man’s Salvation out of World Distress at Hand, p 312)

In 1975 they said, ‘Very short must be the time that remains . . .’.’ (Ibid p 349)

1975 came and went, thus discouraging and embarrassing the WT and JWs. Yet from 1976 to today the WT still says Armageddon and the end of the world is very near.

Conclusion: If the WT has been wrong on every prediction, how can anybody trust it?

Question: Why has the WT missed the date of Armageddon every time it predicted it?

The WT has not only lied to people they call ‘God’s enemies’, but they have lied to their own

After reading these WT false prophecies, and its own admission that it lied, how can the WT be trusted any more?

Has the Watchtower ever lied, covered up, or changed doctrines and dates?

If God speaks through the WT, then He must change His mind very often.

Consider the following changes in dates, prophecies and doctrines:

1. They changed the beginning of the ‘time of the end’ from 1799 to 1914;
2. They changed the date of the second coming of Christ from 1874 to 1914;
3. They changed the nature of Christ’s return from earthly visible to heavenly and invisible;
4. They changed the end of the 6000 years of creation from 1872 to 1975;
5. They changed vaccination from being forbidden to being permitted;
6. They changed the ‘Faithful and wise servant’ from C T Russell to the WT Society;
7. They changed from allowing worship of Jesus to forbidding it;
8. They changed their view of Israel from literal national to spiritual of all believers.

Why so many changes?

Answer: Since the predicted events didn’t happen, they covered up their false prophecies to hide the fact that God really hadn’t spoken through the Watchtower Society.

Do their false prophecies support their claim of spiritual enlightenment and guidance?

What a joke! The WT Society has mislead millions of people in claiming it is God’s sole channel of communication on earth today.


Rutherford believed that God’s Holy Spirit had ceased to function as his teacher, and had been replaced by angels who taught him in his mind.(WT, Sept 1,1930,p.263 & Feb 1,1935,p.41)

Today the leaders claim that both the Holy Spirit, and angels communicate information to them. (WT, March 1, 1972, p.155 and Aug 1, 1987, p.19)

Conclusion: False prophecies lead us to conclude that the Watchtower is receiving its information from demons, rather than from God.

Then the wt should not have made the predictions if they didn't know. This isn't what happened though is it?

C. J. Woodworth was very important for the WT, so Important that we see him in the photo with the governing body  ... together with Rotherford in the book Proclaimers. So good brother he was that the WT chose him to write the 7th volume of the Studies of the Scriptures ... the Finished Mystery. But what is very interesting is that he was also under the influence of the demons ... he even admitted it in one convention and we have his words in writing -  Thirteenth Souvenir Convention Report, page 274.
While on the stand he also made advertisement of the books of the also demonic author (and worldly person)  Mary Baker Eddy. So when Jesus came as king in 1919 He would never chose a person like Woodworth. Yes but the WT put him in the position of the editor of Jehovah's magazines from 1919 until 1946. This is how the spiritual food came to Jehovah's witnesses except this food was not from Jehovah but from demons.

In light of Gianis' comment, would the spiritual food being served now be from God…or Satan?   I do believe Jesus.Defender nailed it:

“Conclusion: False prophecies lead us to conclude that the Watchtower is receiving its information from demons, rather than from God.”

Are these anointed leaders who have consistently desired to set dates of Christ's arrival hearing what the spirit says?

“ That, however, is not the way of life you learned  when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.  You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;  to be made new in the attitude of your minds;  and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body.”  Eph 4:20-25

There are no excuses for the leaders of the Watchtower.  They have mislead thousands of lives who have hung on to every changing doctrine coming through their scheming mouth.

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.  Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. “  Eph 4:14-16

It's seems hard to believe that such beauty and rhythm in the organization could be anything other than blessed by God, even though all know each prophesy has failed!   Who is able to blind us from the TRUTH that is Christ, but the Lord of the darkness?

"Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart.  Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God.  On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.  And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.  The god of the age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.  For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.  For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ." 2 Cor 4:1-6

....and not through any organization.  The organization preaches of itself and its glory, with the "faithful and discreet slave" preaching of itself as well.
